Inspired by: Pink & coral lace

Image via

Sometimes, the sartorial inspiration can strike from the most unexpected places. That's precisely what happened with the above picture. I'm not usually one to swoon over bridesmaids dresses, but I simply couldn't take my eyes off of this gorgeous palette of pink and coral lace. There's something so cheerful and summery about these hues! Plus, pink being my favorite color of all times, I simply can't believe that I don't own anything in pink lace yet!

Of course, these are not the easiest hues and pieces to pull off. Unless you want to resemble a life-sized Barbie desperately seeking her Ken, you should pay close attention to your styling. The best thing to do is avoid too much visual information: no wild mixing and matching here! You can always tone the brightness of pink and coral down with neutrals like black, beige and denim. A stunning lace dress would look fantastic with a denim jacket or a classic trench (hello, glamorous). Or you could pair a bright pink top with skinny jeans and low boots or nude pumps. And if you're more conservative or simply intimidated by all the brightness, start with just a hint of pink lace on your shoes. Bonus points? When you're wearing such cheerful colors, you are bound to feel happy!

So tell me, have you already experimented with colorful lace? Are you planning to?

  1. Dresses numbers 4 and 11 are simply amazing! I would wear them in a heartbeat :)

  2. I am just as obsessed with this colour. It's such a happy uplifting shade. I have a lace top in this colour and it goes so well with many of my other wardrobe items.

    Hi Ivana, how have you been hun? Now you have me obsessing over this stunning and feminine shade. I would love to have number 1, 6,7 and 8, beautiful picks!

  4. Now I'm in love with this shade of lace too!


  5. Oh so pretty! I have some pink wedges with cut out details that look very lacy- I might have to pull them out now!

    Hello dear! I commented but I think it disappeared??? I love the lace dresses and the colors! Great picks for summer!

  7. You can't get any more feminine and pretty than pink & coral lace! I'm totally swooning over that Jason Wu top! As much as I love pink, I don't own anything in pink lace yet either :)

    My dearest Sam, I've been running around like crazy these past two weeks, I really need to slow down a little bit!

    You definitely have great taste: your picks are my favorites too :) Great minds, right?

    Couldn't agree more with you Rowena! Isn't that Jason Wu just stunning? I'm just a tiny bit put off by the price tag, and now I'm hunting for a more affordable option. I was so happy to receive your email last week! Now I need to carve out some time to answer you :)

    Have a fantastic day!
